World Action on Salt & Health

World Salt Awareness Week

Our annual Salt Awareness Week campaign helps raise public awareness of the damaging effect of too much salt to our health.  The international campaign has been running for 11 years, each year with a different theme. 

The annual campaign is our chance to talk directly to the general public, shining a light on the hidden salt in our favourite food products and encouraging those who don't want their food, and their children's food, laden with unnecessary salt to take action. We also aim to encourage the public to add less salt to their food while cooking or when at the table.

We produce posters, leaflets and factsheets, which are then distributed to our members to hold their own local campaigns. Each year more than 15 countries get involved in the campaign.
